Fifty-Four

It is
this day
an anniversary of sorts
Passion Careless
on a football field born
A snowstorm
cloaked Innocence
A young girl didn’t know
Dippity Do in a bouffant hairdo
wouldn’t save her
Make her wondrous
Insulate her
through boiled pasta
To Loved
and longterm Wanted

To the druggist
Past the chocolates
Grab the Cold Duck
and Phenobarbital

I wear my mothers
Haircolor and pearls
Hope I am her ComeUppance
